We had our best breeding season ever this year! At 19 years young, Zack is still completely sound in every way. His great conformation (thick bone, strait legs & stout build), outstanding personality, intelligence & bravery, and the guarantee of beautiful color attracted mare owners in a wide variety of disciplines. We’ve got foals coming from World Champion Western Pleasure & Halter mares, a couple of huge HUS mares, a few ranch/cutting type mares, a race-bred barrel mare & even a couple dressage/sport-horse mares! The 2018 foaling season will be very exciting for Fresh Paint Farm!

We purchased Zack in 2014 & we absolutely could not LOVE him more!  Aside from the obvious – great pedigree, great performer & 100% color producer – Zack is a truly outstanding individual with a wonderful personality, gentle disposition, incredible movement & he is just an absolute pleasure to be around on a daily basis.  He’s everything that I’d hoped he would be & then some.

At 17 years young, Zack returned to the show pen with Katie & earned 5 Tobiano Color points, .5 Open Aged Stallion Halter points, .5 Amateur Aged Stallion Halter points & was 2X APHA Reserve Grand Champion Stallion in Alabama!  He took everything in stride, behaved perfectly & showed like the true professional that he is –  great job old timer!

We feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to own Zack!  This guy is the ultimate in Paint Western Pleasure breeding, performance & color.  In the show pen he earned 149 APHA Open Western Pleasure points in the early 2000’s before retiring to stud.  His homozygous tobiano status is no mistake, nor is it a “just breed for color” thing – read on for a look into this stallion’s amazing pedigree!

Zack’s sire is the great Mr Zippo Jack Bar.  He showed very successfully in both the Paint & Pinto Associations.  He is a Pinto World Champion in Open Western Pleasure with 125 points.  He is also an APHA Reserve World Champion in Open Western Pleasure with 92 points (Superior).  Mr Zippo Jack Bar was a prolific stallion siring a high percentage of color foals & multiple World Champions.

Zack’s dam is Zips Miss Millie, who is both a proven performer & producer.  She earned 30 APHA Western Pleasure points & ROMs in both Open & Youth Western Pleasure.  She is the dam of 8 foals, 4 of them point earners, with 3 of those having their ROM &/or Superior!

Zippo Jack Bar (AQHA) is legendary – his movement, size & style won in the 80’s & it’s still what we strive for today – slow stride, flat front leg, deep hock, level topline, self carriage & beautiful cadence.  His influence is felt in almost every stock-type breed today.  He is both maternal & paternal grand sire to Zack.  I don’t think there is another homozygous tobiano stallion that can make that claim – let me know if you find one!

On the bottom side, his maternal grand dam, Miss Sky High, earned 170 Western Pleasure points, 88 Halter points & 42 HUS points – of the 11 foals she produced, 9 were performers with 5 of those earning ROM/SUP awards!  She was by Sky Bug Bingo – arguably one of the greatest tobiano stallions of all time.  He earned a Superior in Halter and ROMs in 6 events – Western Pleasure, Cutting, HUS, Reining, Racing & Barrels – he was an APHA Champion, Supreme Champion & World Champion for Get of Sire!

On the top side, Zack’s paternal grand dam, Barton Jewel, earned 61 Halter, 19 Western Pleasure, 14 HUS & 4 Reining points – of the 16 foals she produced, 12 were performers with 9 of those earning ROMs & 8 earning SUP awards – what an outstanding mare!  She was by another very influential tobiano stallion, Painted Jewel, who had 22 Halter, 12 Racing points & produced many top performers.
